Richard Sherman: Peyton Is The Classiest Player I’ve Ever Met



Say what you want about Peyton Manning in regards to his legacy and place in history, but he’s one of the all-time greats and will go down in infamy as such.

Richard Sherman didn’t utter anything close to an insult towards Manning this week, and moments like last night are why. After suffering through what could be his lowest moment as a pro, Manning was only really concerned about Sherman’s health after the all pro left the game with an ankle injury.

“He was really concerned about my well-being,” Sherman said. “After a game like that, a guy who’s still classy enough to say ‘How are you doing?’ To show that kind of concern for an opponent shows a lot of humility and class.”

Sherman said that despite Manning’s bad game, the Seahawks continue to have a great deal of respect for him.

“He’s a Hall of Fame player, he’s a living legend, he’s a record-holding quarterback, he’s a Super Bowl champion, he’s been a Super Bowl MVP,” Sherman said of Manning.

“Peyton is the Classiest person/player I have ever met! I could learn so much from him! Thank you for being a great Competitor and person,”

  1. I completely agree. Despite the poor performance of the Broncos, the Seahawks showed up to play and win. But Manning and the rest of the team are very classy. I truly hope Manning will remain at the helm and lead the Broncos to Championship and Superbowl next year.

  2. That word “infamy” does not mean what you think it means unless you’re trying to say that he’ll be remembered for the awful deed of being one of the all-time greats. Infamy describes things that will be remembered for how terrible they were, like Pearl Harbor, 9/11, school shootings, etc.

    • It could be in reference to his poor performance in clutch situations in the past. Beside the year he won the Super Bowl, Peyton Manning has been known to choke when the game really mattered in the post season.

  3. My goodness! Is that what you people got from this article?? How Sherman used the word “infamy”. What I think He was saying is that Mr. Manning,(future H.O.F.’er , Great Guy, A real Winner) took time to ask “how He was”, knowing that some injuries you sustain in the N.F.L. means your career is over, and you can never play the game that you have loved your whole life, EVER AGAIN!!! Mr. Manning is a class act and will be thought of as maybe the best ever to play Q.B. in the N.F.L.. Mr. Sherman is also a great player but has not played long enough to be the best yet. I hope He stays with the Hawks and they become a DYNASTY like Pittsburgh was and Dallas also. GO HAWKS CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD
